About Clifford Thure Thure Nelson

I married Ruth Elizabeth Wenstrom during the Roaring Twenties in Chicago, IL. I worked for City Ice Co. and Jefferson Ice Co. We waited until 1940 to have children, Wendy and Lana. In those days one car to a family. We lived through the Great Depression also. Ruth's sister, Viola Magnuson lived very close and visited us daily. In the early days I was an "Ice Man" delivering one large ice mass for ice-boxes. (before electric refridgerators) Black and White televisions came around 1951. In the winter I delivered oil for heating. Ruth worked also. We were Grandparents to five granddaughters, Vicki, Tammy, Tracey, Anne and Julie.
